Incredible follow-up to the night before, both on an equal par as far as performance is concerned.
I, too, am a big champion of Mountains of the Moon - that *exquisite* transition they worked on into Dark Star is such delicate psychedelia - absolutely no other band explored this space in this way - it's cold, fragile, lovely....
...and check out the St Stephen right on the heels of the vocal coda in Rag...
...AND, the mad energy of Lovelight - they got that crowd in a total delirium!
The Dream Bowl shows hold their own just fine against the Fillmore masterpieces of the next week. No complaints, just a happy deadhead here!
Subject: 11,2 much !!!
11 ,2 much 4 wordz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Subject: Certainly up to par.
Great recording as well.
Subject: top 10
To say that this is a top ten show of '69 means that it is a top ten show of all time, imho.
Talk all you want about a '70-this show or an '80-that show, but come on! This was five nights before they played the Dark Star/St. Stephen and one month after the Eleven and Lovelight on Live/Dead. Five billion stars.
Subject: Mountains of the moon
Wonderful show ,perfect set list and Charlie Millers magic with the sound! I'll never understand why Mountains of the Moon was dropped after so few preformances, an anglo-irish folk ballad on acid Garcia knew he and Humter had created a gem .I am sure in some realm of a higher reality Tom Banjo and the Marsh Queens Daughter are together.
thanks to Charlie and everyone else that enrichs our lifes with these gifts!
Subject: Can you hear me now?
A lot is being said about the sound quality being improved. This version is the first I ever heard so I have nothing to compare it to. Working my way through the Dead Archive and well...to me the Dead is like wine...I know what I like and it gets better with age and this is a great harvest from a vintage year. It is simple yet bold, and has a strong finish. I give it 3.54 stars.
Subject: Smokin' '69
A smoking hot show with great fidelity. A must listen show.
Subject: *Astonishing* Upgrade !
I don't know how many times I can thank you, Charlie....
This is perfect "coming down on a Sunday morning" music... The last tape of the night/morning....
Subject: nice upgrade
Mr Miller has done it again-this recording is avast improvement previous archive versions. Thank you Charlie for making this version come alive again.

Subject: Thank you.
Had this recording for years. So happy for the upgrade.
Jam between Mountains into Dark Star is haunting and given new resonance with this transfer.
Primal Dead, obviously. Definitely one of the top 10 of 1969. Just as good imho as the famed Fillmore West run a week later.
much, much thanks to Charlie Miller for this amazing upgrade! the sound on this show is infinitely improved, there is virtually no hiss, wonderfully clear instrument separation, and even Phil's annoying bass distortion during Dark Star has been removed. if this isn't one of the best of '69 already, it sure is now...
Subject: This is amazing!
What a fantastic recording! The Dark Star is one of my favorites from any year. I am so grateful to be able to listen to this crisp clean version. Thank you to all involved.

This newly sourced remaster is a tremendous improvement over the Owen Brothers and Matt Vernon transfers of this amazing performance, both of which were quite muddy sounding.
Crystal clear and brilliant (just listen to the pristine Mountains of the Moon), this upgraded source is most welcomed and has transformed what was once a rather dull recording of an epic performance, into a top-ten show of 1969. (99 pts)
